The Judge comes with the throne as a Voyager. The deluxe Alicon and battlemaster Slitherfang are each separate.

Some of Takara's Earthrise photos have been of earlier non-finalized versions of the figures, such as Takara's consistent use of the gray-handed Optimus.

To be fair, Hasbro used the gray hand prototype Optimus Prime again for the Toy Fair display last weekend, even though finalized samples have been on review for the past few months, and available at retail for the past few weeks. :lol:

I've been working overtime to try to get this Target sale to work for me. I've had to be down right pesky asking employees to check in back. From the stock room I've found Grapple, and both leaders. I've also found the Micromasters on peg. Some decent savings for sure! Kudos to all the Target employees who don't seem to be bothered by my OCD approach. ;)^

Seeing as the sale ends tomorrow (02/29) my hopes of finding Deluxes are fleeting.

But speaking of Prime...
He is super duper uber cool!!! I will say that having him next to Siege Prime feels a tad redundant. Because Siege P is SOOOO good.
But, if a hyper G1 thing is your thang, it's ER all the way. The way his truck front curls up into his chest cavity is damn near LADDER MAGIC!!!! :michaelbay:
But the transformation is down right glorious. The product of careful study of all Primes before him from all lines.

The way the front wheels are handled is his only shortcoming. Siege did that way better. But I really appreciate how they don't interfere with the waist swivel. Also the trailer feels a tad dinky, and I'm slightly miffed the drone is grey and silver instead of blue, but really fun to have non the less.
The Matrix and it's cavity is perfect! I didn't even see it was there until I really went looking.

Running out of space in the Collect-O-Tron has me on the verge of an entire collection reset. Can't believe I'm considering packing away my Classics. But, if this is the Prime to be THE PRIME on my shelves, I'll take it!

Are these strictly Takara Tomy exclusives? Or will these be available in the states as well?

They're standard retail in the US. For some odd reason, TakaraTomy has decided to make a significant portion of the Earthrise line exclusive to TakaraTomy Mall for Japan. Still the same as the US versions thanks to brand unification mind you, same US names too.

I was expecting the Alicon figure to have inverted knees in its alt-mode, and many third party products take that approach. The renders and pictures suggest that level of articulation. Does anyone know if that pose is intended or possible? Should I even want them to pose like that?

How cool were the staff when you asked them to check in the back? I just went to the two Targets closest to my work and one had more Siege than ever before while the other had normal amount of Siege plus Trip-up and Daddy-O. I didn't think to ask the staff to check :BANG_HEAD:

Nope, the spike on the knee cap functions as a stopper. There's still the thigh swivel so you can turn the legs 180, but then you'd end up with ab upward facing toe.

@Cobotron The trailer is indeed a bit dinky, but it's the best we're getting within the limits of a CHUG Leader-class. And at least the drone detaches for fun.
Am I the only one who'd like to see a Commander-class special version of it with all the features of the G1 trailer?

They've all been really nice and helpful. Some even went back, were gone for a good 10 minutes digging, and produced no Earthrise. It's totally worth asking. Just have them scan the DCPI code of the assortment you're after. ;)^

Yeah, it's a tidbit underwhelming, but I'm not complaining at all. I'm really happy to have a CHUG style classic traditional Optimus either way.

A Commander Class would be cool, but really if I need a super deluxe trailer, I do have the MP trailer, so.... you know. That kind of does the job.

Here's an idea for Hasbro, why not just sell a "all the bells and whistles" trailer on its own at the Voyager pricepoint somehow under the Selects line. I say Selects knowing that they have not had any unique/new molds yet, but I think selling just a trailer would be a hard sell at regular retail. While the first version might be pricey on the molds, they could redeco it for Nemesis Prime and probably one or 2 more decos, and then co-tool/re-tool parts to make a Magnus type car carrier and sell a few versions of that one too.

So I just got grapple and it didn't even survive one transformation, the peg that connects his foot to his crane in vehicle mode snapped off in his foot, now it can't even use the combat system; thanks hasbro you suck

Speaking of the repair drone in Earthrise Optimus Prime's trailer being gray plastic and not blue, like the original toy, does the gray make it more "screen accurate" to the G1 cartoon? I've been trying to find a picture of the drone, which I'm not even sure was shown in the cartoon, but I've come up with nothing so far.
